    LOL is right. if they had a pill with 100% of everything you need we wouldn't have to eat anything at all except that pill. and water, too.

    no, this is a false statement

    we need calories to 'burn' in our bodies to convert to energy. All the other stuff is needed for it to work smoothly but doesent provide the raw energy needed for movement and bodu functions.
    that makes no logic

    Yea, we do need calories. That's why they sugdest we eat 2,000 a day, because we need that much energy.

    Well, relative to what most people in the first world eat, this has some truth. Really, though, it's just a crash diet - when you don't get carbs (and the sugars derived from them,) your body fuels itself by burning stored fat, which won't last forever. To 'run,' all you need is sugar; it makes your nerves and muscles work. Many (if not most) insects consume sugar almost exclusively, because they are born with all of the nutrients they will ever need and their physiology is designed in such a way as to not deteriorate enough to need regeneration over their lifetime. All they have to eat is sugar to keep things running. But to really stay alive, humans need some of everything, because the machinery of your body is made from vitamins, minerals and protiens and will break down without raw nutrients to sustain the material lost from normal wear and tear.

    Vitamins etc aside, I eat cause I like it!
    Eating a fine meal is definitely one of life's pleasures, along with good company and a good laugh.

    That too. But I hate the thought of getting old, feeble and weak. If we find the key to propper eating, nourishing our bodies can be they key to extended youth. I don't want eternal life, I just want to keep my youth, my strength and stamina, and that's why I eat as well as I can.
